We are ready to review Ready Player One this week.  We hope you're ready too!  While 80s themes are plastered all over that movie, more classic console games have been announced IRL.  However, the Avengers are getting ready for the battle of their lives in Infinity War, and we're predicting who might die and the Rotten Tomatoes score.  The Announcement of a new Rick and Morty comic-book has inspired Darth Taxus to turn the geeks into characters from the show and make them fight it out (oh jeez).  Also, the reigning Geek Supreme gets to infuse his own MEGASEGMENT into the episode.

Just when you think things couldn't get better, worse or STRANGER...you have this week's episode of The Geek Supreme.  It comes complete with stories about draining comic icons of their blood and forcing someone to say they love Michael Bay.  It comes with interest in a Last Starfighter reboot and excitement about an upcoming Star Wars movie.  To top it all off, we'll throw in some lyrics without singing bad karaoke, and play some comic convention geek word games.  If you miss this week's show it will almost be as big of a mistake as the one Darth Taxus admits at the beginning of the show.
